FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the peptidase S1 (chymotrypsin) family of serine endopeptidases. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a mature protein product. This product appears to play a role in host defense, including inflammation and antigen processing. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit enhanced susceptibility to bacterial and fungal infection. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit decreased susceptibility to bacterial infection induced mortality but increased susceptibility to mortality induced by fungal infection. Mice either homozygous or heterozygous for a knock-in allele develop an abrupt onset, rapidly fatal acute leukemia. [provided by MGI curators]
